Here Comes the Navy is a 1934 film starring James Cagney, Pat O'Brien, and Gloria Stuart. The movie opens with a scene of a small town in Pennsylvania as a young man named Chesty O'Connor, played by James Cagney, decides to join the navy. He has always had a fascination with the sea and sees the navy as the perfect way to satisfy that desire.

Chesty's father, who is a veteran of the navy himself, disapproves of his son's decision and warns him of the dangers of the job. However, Chesty is determined to go through with it and travels to the Naval Training Station in Norfolk, Virginia.

Once there, Chesty meets his old buddy, "Biff" Martin, played by Pat O'Brien, who is already a seasoned sailor. Biff takes Chesty under his wing and shows him the ropes, introducing him to the discipline of the Navy and the camaraderie of sailor life. Chesty quickly adapts to his new surroundings and even finds himself falling in love with a local girl named Ruby, played by Gloria Stuart.

However, things take a turn when Chesty's father suddenly passes away and he is forced to return home to take care of his family's farm. Chesty's new life feels like a far cry from the adventurous one he had been living, and he begins to feel stifled and unhappy.

But fate has a way of intervening, and Chesty soon finds himself getting a second chance to live the life he always dreamed of. When tensions rise between the United States and a small Central American country, Chesty and Biff are called upon to serve their country once again.

The two friends and their fellow sailors are sent on a mission to show force in the waters off the coast of the country, to deter any potential attacks. Chesty quickly proves himself to be an invaluable asset to the crew, and he and Biff are instrumental in successfully completing the mission.

Throughout the movie, we see the bonds between Chesty and Biff grow stronger and the camaraderie and brotherhood of the sailors shine through. At the same time, we witness the struggles that Chesty faces as he strives to find his place in the world and reconcile his love for both the sea and his family's farm.
